Why Do I Want to Stay Here?  2018's Talent Management Trends, Challenges, and Strategies

With unemployment at low levels and a strong job market for talent, many employees have a number of job opportunities available to them.  Why should they stay with your organization, when the offerings provided by competitors seem more appealing? 

Join us for this upcoming interactive webinar where we will 

  • Delve into the concept of employee engagement
  • Understand what retains employees
  • Explore how total rewards can effectively support employee retention & engagement efforts

The session will present information on the latest research in the areas of employee engagement and retention in an interactive format.  There will be ample time for questions throughout and at the end of the presentation.  Join us for ideas you can use in both the short- and long-terms.

SHRM and HRCI re-certification codes will be provided for attendance at the live session.
